The CORA PAIGE Pendant
HomeStudio was honored to help out with a fundraiser for Cora Paige in February. Cora passed away recently from Neuroblastoma stage 4, a form of childhood cancer. We created a pendant to raise funds for a playground in her honor.
Of the 200+ Etsy sellers who also participated, nearly 2000 items were sold totaling over $16,000! This is about half of the total amount raised for the playground to date. About $14,000 is still needed to meet the goal for the proposed playground. The parents will continue to accept donations through the end of this month. We have chosen to continue to help.
March 21st - 31st:
100% of the proceeds of the sale of our Cora's Playground scrabble pendant and snake chain will be donated to the Cora Paige Playground.
We will also include 10% of our earnings of ALL SALES from our shop to the Cora Paige playground fundraiser. If you would like your purchase to go towards this, please be sure to type "Cora's Playground" in the message-to-seller box at checkout
Please also pass the news around!
